Tell Biden Admin: Heed Growing Calls for Climate Action by Strengthening Clean Car and Fuel Economy Standards

imageLogo

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) just took steps to re-establish and strengthen clean car and fuel economy standards that were gutted by the Trump administration — but their proposals don't go far enough to reach our climate goals.

Transportation is the largest source of carbon emissions in the U.S., which means that we can't stop the climate crisis without strong clean car standards.

The U.N.'s new report on climate change makes clear that the world MUST reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 to stave off climate catastrophe. That means the U.S. must be on a pathway to all new vehicle sales being zero emissions by 2035, and to reach that goal, we must be at least 50% of the way there by 2030.

Biden's EPA and DOT are inviting the public to weigh in on its clean car and fuel economy standards before the new regulations are finalized. And NRDC is rallying 50,000 activists to push the Biden administration to heed our growing calls for major climate action by going bigger on clean car and fuel economy standards before it's too late.

Your message will be sent to:
EPA Administrator Michael Regan
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg
President Joe Biden
Vice President Kamala Harris
Subject line: Please take the next step to help reduce transportation pollution

Dear administration officials:

I applaud your efforts to cut back on U.S. vehicle emissions and chart a course towards a future with net-zero emissions from transportation, but I'm afraid they don't go far enough.

The new standard allows too many giveaways, or "credits," to the automobile industry, which could cut short our carbon pollution reductions by a large margin. Furthermore, your proposed rules deliver less carbon pollution reductions and fuel savings than the Obama-era standards.

I applaud President Biden's executive order mandating that 50% of vehicle sales be zero emission vehicles by 2030. Please adopt at least EPA's Alternative #2 and a stronger fuel economy standard to drive much-needed short-term cuts in emissions and put us on the road to the goal of reaching 100% net-zero vehicle sales by 2035.

I implore you to heed the dire warnings of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's new report and strengthen clean car and fuel economy standards to ensure that our country can reach its climate goals. Thank you!
